    So Harry Potter’s single day record remains intact. Interesting.

    I realy thought this would flirt with a quarter-billion first weekend.  Did the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight take that much ouf of the boxoffice haul?  That’s almost 20% below the original.

    I think it did take a bite of the box office. There is a chance that late Sunday screenings will boost the BO a bit, but I do think it’ll fall short of $200 mil now, which was unexpected. Regardless, people will spin this as a disaster, but it’s far from it. It’ll still do HUGE business, especially overseas.

    It’s actually only less than 10% ($207 million v. $188.7), and it’s international numbers are huge before opening in China and Japan. The sports plus less than enthusiastic reviews, plus some fatigue in this genre is probably the reason for the decline. However it’s long term success should see $550 million domestic and it should top the original internationally.

    This will probably end the ‘biggest movie of all time’ discussion. Given the competition coming up, it will probably end up only a bit above Fast and the Furious, and Star Wars will be the #1 of the year.

    From Boxofficemojo:

    “If Age of Ultron plays like the first Avengers, it will end its run with around $560 million. However, if it follows the same trajectory as Iron Man 3,
    it will close at $440 million. Either way, it will be one of the
    highest-grossing movies ever, but there’s still a huge difference
    between those two numbers.”

    I think Age of Ultron just left the door open for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to finish as the highest grossing movie of 2015! If it’s a battle between the two Disney wins. With that said, it might not be a bad idea to keep an eye on Mockingjay Part 2 . Lionsgate could very well be in this race.

    I never thought Avengers 2 would make as much as the first. Sequels never do – all the novelty is gone.

    In terms of end of the year tallies, Avengers should have no problem overtaking Furious 7 domestically. The latter film’s foreign haul has been crazy big, though a lot of that’s due to market expansion, and I think Avengers will benefit as well. Hunger Games will be big, but worldwide no entry in that series has ever broken a billion.

    The Force Awakens is the real challenger. Star Wars is only a bit under James Bond’s $5 billion domestic haul as the higgest grossing franchise of all time, adjusted for inflation, and that’s with 17 less movies (additonal comparison: the Marvel franchise is at about $3 billion with 11 movies to Star Wars’s 6). Episode VII is reaching Phantom Menace levels of anticipation, and that film made almost $700 million adjusted. And if The Force Awkens ends up being good (a luxury Episode I did not have), who knows what could happen. Don’t expect an opening weekend record because December is notoriously bad on that front, but don’t be surprised if Star Wars has what it takes to go the distance and give Avatar a run for its money.

    Whatever happens I’m sure we’ll see 2015 end up as the higgest grossing year in history. Don’t forget we also have new James Bond and Mission Impossible films coming off franchise-high grosses, as well as new iterations of Jurassic Park, Mad Max, and Fantastic Four franchises, as well as another Marvel film, two Pixar movies, a Despicable Me spin-off, other blockbuster hopefuls and whatever other surprise successes that will happen. It’s going to be a crazy year.

    Weekend Results
    1. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $187.65 million
    2. The Age of Adaline – $6.25 million
    3. Furious 7 – $6.11 million
    4. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 – $5.55 million
    5. Home – $3.3 million 

    It looks like Furious 7 will break The Avengers record and end up at the 3rd highest box office of all time.

    The fast and furious did not have a huge start when it started 14 years ago. Unlike Marvel movies and the like, it did not have a fanbase coming from an established property. However, it also means that it does not have the restrictions placed on it by an established property. It has total creative freedom.

    There are a lot of success factors in the fast and furious franchise. One of the factor is story telling. The 7 movies in the series are telling one story, they are not telling 7 stories.

    1. The Fast and the Furious – Introduce Dom, Brian, Letty and Mia
    2. 2 Fast 2 Furious – Introduce Romand and Tej
    3. Tokyo Drift – Introduce Han
    4. Fast & Furious – Love between Brian and Mia
    5. Fast Five – Love between Dom and Letty
    6. Fast & Furious 6 – Assemble the team
    7. Furious 7 – The team goes on the first mission

    Most franchises are trilogies that last a couple of years, but not 14 years. And if there is a pre-quel, it usually tells a different story.

    There is only one franchise that is like fast and furious, it is the Bond films. The first Bond film was in 1962. 53 years later, 24 Bond films have been made. For every couple of years, there is a Bond film and it still keeps going. If fast and furious can hire a script writer that can plan 6 or 7 movies ahead and tell a good story, there is no reason why the franchise cannot keep going like the Bond films. Not every fast and furious movie has to go on a mission like Furious 7, some may go back to story telling like 2 Fast and 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift. How to plan the future movies depends on how good the script writer is in telling one big story.

    Good casting is another factor for its success. It appeals to audience worldwide and it results in large overseas box office. It is now an international brand. It should not pander to China and be downgraded to become a local brand. The Bond franchise is an international brand and it is the leader in its genre. The Bond franchise will not pander to China. If China wants to buy, it can buy the Bourne franchise, the Mission Impossible franchise or the Die Hard franchise. It is the same with fast and furious. Fast and furious is the leader in its genre. If China wants to buy, it can buy something like the Need for Speed franchise.

    I had a feeling it would be more than the projected total, glad I was right. Not bad, not bad at all. Excellent, actually. Insane.
